Flipping a tire end over end is both a common boot-camp exercise and a gross misunderstanding of what the wheel was meant to do. Rethink conventions with this Groupon.

Downtown Athletic Club
Downtown Athletic Club has towered over downtown Eugene since 1985, its three historic buildings housing more than 100,000 square feet of fitness amenities and community services. Corridors open into stretches of sports courts—including basketball, handball, and racquetball—and forests of cardio and strength-training equipment. In private studios, certified instructors lead a variety of fitness classes, such as yoga, martial arts, and personal training. Meanwhile, in an onsite lap pool, coaches oversee swim lessons and aquatic aerobics, and host adult swim teams.
In addition to fitness services, the center strives to create a communal relationship among its members with its abundance of social services. Childcare professionals conduct an interactive and educational state-certified preschool, along with a wide range of themed summer camps. Throughout the week, the center holds special events for its adult members, from book clubs to wine and beer tasting at its onsite, rooftop restaurant The Ax Billy Grill. Every Saturday night, the grill invites guests to carouse to live music while sampling selections from its menu of wine, beer, and American grill-style fare. For high-brow affairs, the center's expansive banquet facilities open up for weddings, private parties, and members-only games of freeze tag.
